Complimentary consultations on offer during Tooth Wear Awareness Month

This October, the London Tooth Wear Centre® is offering complimentary tooth wear consultations (while appointments last) as part of its Tooth Wear Awareness Month.

The aim of Tooth Wear Awareness Month is to raise national awareness of this growing problem. The most recent statistics from the Adult Dental Health Survey, commissioned by the NHS and published in 2009 indicate that over 75% of adults and more than 50% of children show signs of tooth wear. If we continue as we are, this is set to get worse; particularly so for adults as we are living longer and keeping our teeth longer.

Tooth wear can be caused by clenching or grinding the teeth, often whilst asleep; an action that is most frequently stress-related and can result in significant discomfort. Consuming ‘healthy’ foods and drinks can also contribute to wear due to their acidic or fibrous nature.

Intrinsic sources of acid, such as reflux, may have an erosive effect on the tooth surface, as can over-zealous tooth brushing and behaviours such as substance misuse. Sufferers may notice teeth lose their surface characteristics, become chipped, develop grooves at the gum line and darken in colour. Symptoms can include sensitivity, jaw ache, headaches and difficulty chewing.

The complimentary consultation offers a clinical examination of the teeth to ascertain whether you are suffering from tooth wear, along with holistic advice to help prevent further problems, if appropriate. The team at the Centre will also inform you should you need to consult your current dentist or require a referral. You will also need to continue to see your regular dentist for your routine dental checks and any related treatment.

The London Tooth Wear Centre® offers a comprehensive approach to managing tooth wear in a professional and friendly environment. It is headed up by Clinical Director Professor Andrew Eder, a Specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics. He is also Professor/Honorary Consultant at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.
